A scholarly yet accessible biography of a pioneering dinosaur hunter and scholar. Gideon Mantell discovered the Iguanodon fossils, and several other dinosaur species, spent over twenty five years restoring Iguanodon fossils, and helped establish the idea of an Age of Reptiles that ended with their extinction at the conclusion of the Mesozoic Era. He had significant interaction with such well-known figures as James Parkinson, Georges Cuvier, Charles Lyell, Roderick Murchison, Charles Darwin, and Richard Owen.
' ... builds a rich understanding of a key player in an important evolutionary drama. I recommend it to a broad range of readers, from dinosaur enthusiasts, to historians of science and biologists interested in the roots of our sciences.' John Flynn, Trends in Ecology and Evolution
